Long-winded diatribe about pseudo science without referencing previous topic or source.

Observation that previous post was informative but completely off-topic; expression of wonderment as for which thread the comment was intended.

Expression of amusement; supposition of previous poster's vast experience on message forums.

Recognition that post is completely off-topic. Restates original post.

laughing icon followed by expression of uncertainty as to whether pun is incidental or directed; statement of checking wings, beak, and talons for fluff and little bits, just in case.

Completely off-topic comment about last evening's social event.

Argumentative posting about the British definition of "gecko" vs the American definition of "gecko".

"Guest" chimes in with observation that it should be spelled "geckoe", and at any rate it really refers to some other genera entirely. Original topic of thread is never again referred to.
